Their Golden's Gone, and a Family is Heartbroken
Let's not even think about how you feel if there's no happy ending, which too often means you have no idea what happened to your pet.
I certainly hope the best for the Pinder-Quintero family of Kendall, who are frantic to find Bogey, their 10-month-old red Golden retriever. They believe he was taken from a neighbor's yard sale about 9:30 a.m. Saturday by a woman in a small maroon SUV. Neighbors described her as Hispanic, short and heavyset with short, bleached hair, in her 50s with a mole on one cheek.
According to Stan Pinder, a real estate agent, the family went out for the day Saturday and returned to find the gate open, and shreds of Bogey's red collar, with his tags, on the back porch. Stan thinks that Bogey ate the collar, then took a stroll over to the yard sale.
There, neighbors told him, the woman coaxed Bogey into her SUV and took off.
Stan said his wife, Sandy Quintero, "is sobbing constantly. She adores him.''
Their 15-year-old daughter has been crying on Bogey's pillow.
So far, the family has distributed 500 fliers with Bogey's picture on them. They're offering a $1,000 reward: no questions asked. He is microchipped, so any vet who sees him can identify him
I'm hoping that whoever has Bogey will do the right thing and return him. He's a beautiful boy and his family needs him back.
